Today's featured relative in my database is my maternal 9th-great grandmother, Elizabeth Maris.
Elizabeth was born February 3, 1664/65 in Worchestershire, England, the daughter of George and Alice (________) Maris. She emigrated with her family to Pennsylvania in 1683. Elizabeth married on 5th day 6th month 1685 at Darby MM in Chester Co., PA to John Mendenhall, son of Thomas and Joane (Stroade) Mendenhall. John was born August 30, 1659 in England and died August 19, 1758 in Chester Co., PA. Elizabeth died 1708 in Chester Co., PA.
This family was Quaker and I need to verify that the dates I have have been properly converted. They are also in the ancestry of U.S. President Richard M. Nixon.

i. Aaron Mendenhall b. September 20, 1690, d. April 4, 1765 East Caln, PA, m. Rose Pierson
